Minted Helps Conquer the Holidays


Each year I make the same promise to myself to sit down and make my own set of holiday cards that are at once beautiful, ever so slightly witty, and 100 percent personalized. Every year, without fail, I break that promise. Sigh! It takes a lot of time and work to be that perfect. This year I’m getting an early start, and I’ve decided to be honest with myself about my capabilities, or lack thereof. Rather than spending far too long designing the perfect card in my head, then quickly scrapping the idea after realizing (again) that my creative skill does not equal the creativity of my ideas, I’ve decided to outsource things. Enter Minted.

Unlike most personalized card companies, Minted’s designs look thoughtful and unique, rather than like an afterthought purchase at your drugstore. I’ll pick my design from their hundreds of options, make it my own by choosing a colorway, adding a photo (or not), and personalizing the text. Then Minted will print them out and ship them to my doorway. In a nutshell, I get the easy and fun parts–not to mention the glory of finally sending out my cards–and they get all the work done.

And because the early bird always sends out their correspondence on time, Minted is offering 10 percent off all holiday cards from now until November 1st with code FALL10. Being perfect has never been so easy.
